The Single-Cell Connection 
Defining a new path to discovery in neurobiology

Single-cell analysis has revolutionized our understanding of neurological disorders and the complex network of disease development. Visit Fluidigm at Neuroscience 2015 to learn how high-throughput exploration of DNA, RNA and protein from individual neurons can reveal the critical mechanisms of underlying normal and disregulated function.

Fluidigm offers simple and flexible single-cell biology solutions to transform your neurobiology research today. Stop into booth #509 to discover the best tools for you.

Hot Topics in Stem Cell Biology: A Christopher Reeve Foundation Event

Join us for an evening of stem cell biology breakthroughs and networking with peers and single-cell biology experts at this exclusive event, proudly sponsored by Fluidigm.

Monday, October 19
6:30–9:30 pm CDT
McCormick Place, S105
Food and beverages will be provided.

Fluidigm proudly continues its partnership with UCSF to discover new cell types in the developing neural cortex, which has yielded two seminal publications on C1 and important new single-cell technology such as Callisto and Helios™.
